George Lucas, Mellody HobsonFinancier Mellody Hobson, 43, and film-maker George Lucas, 68, are making their love official. The long-time couple are engaged to be married, reports Huffington Post Celebrity. This is her first marriage, his second.

Hobson, who is president of Ariel Investments LLC, a $3 billion investment firm based in Chicago, and the Star Wars director have been together for 7 years.

HuffPost Celebrity reports:

 The pair are often spotted hand-in-hand on the red carpet, everywhere from the Cannes Film Festival to Formula One Grand Prix races to the NAACP awards.

This will be the second marriage for the “Star Wars” writer-director — he was previously married to Marcia Lucas (1969–1983) — and the first marriage for Hobson, who helms the $3 billion investment firm and is a regular financial contributor to “Good Morning America.”

Lucas recently made headlines after donating $4 billion to an education foundation — the amount he received after selling Lucasfilm Ltd. (which Lucas solely owned) to Disney.

“For 41 years, the majority of my time and money has been put into the company,” Lucas said of his donation. “As I start a new chapter in my life, it is gratifying that I have the opportunity to devote more time and resources to philanthropy.”

According to a source close to the couple, Lucas popped the question over the holidays:

“It happened just recently and they told close friends of their engagement while vacationing in St. Barts.”

The wedding is being planned for late spring and it’s a good guess it will be in either the San Francisco area or Chicago.

Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Michael Sneed, reports that the couple’s annual Christmas card was inscribed with the John F. Kennedy quote:

“If not us, then whom? If not now, then when?”

In addition to serving as president of Ariel, LLC, which is one of the largest African American-owned money management and mutual fund companies in the United States, Hobson is also the Chairman of Dreamworks Animation SKG, Inc.. She is also a regular contributor on financial issues to ABC’s Good Morning America.

Congrats to the happy couple!
